I've put alot of money into the look of my car, now it's time to get the performance up there. I have an 03' SVT, with just an intake, coil pack, and plugs and wires. I have no more then $1000 to spend on the performance of my car and figured that no one would know what I should get better then other SVT owners. Thanks

if you want power just watch for sale ads or get some sort of FI

not knowing what is already on your car

but

Tune would be first on my list

then FI

For $1000, get Toms Predator Tune, and a RT Cat pipe, VF Trans Mount and a Short Throw Shifter.

vender section of the forum. His company is called Focus Power. My opinion would be if you are strictly looking for power, a real cold air intake, exhaust and tune, im sure you could find a used intake and exhaust for alot cheaper than new. If you want over all performance then a tune and a great set of tires would go a long way.

The only gains to be had with an aftermarket exhaust is sound.
Power gains are minimal at best on a NA engine.

did I hear right that Hypill's exaust set up for the SVT actually has some gains in power? That is if you can get in touch with him.

I went with Tom's Tune (Predator Diablo) and am very satisfied. It adds a noticeable difference in mid-range torque.

Performance tires are definitely something you want to keep on the FSVT. [thumb]
